Fast-paced, productive news station
Web Intern (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – January 25, 2018
Working at WISC was rarely easy, but it was often rewarding. On any given day, I would produce between five and 10 stories in a four-to-five hour shift, often on a very tight timeline. Getting the story right and out quickly was highly prioritized, so I had to learn how to summarize things like incident reports efficiently while still making them interesting for our readers. While there was some conflict between departments occasionally, and I felt that some of my coworkers did not respect me or my abilities, the people I worked with every night were excellent and my managers all ran a good station.
Great work experience, busy without being mindless
Demanding, minimal margin for error
